Are Mike Pence, Sean Spicer and Reince Preibus Plotting a Coup Against Trump? Maxine Waters Says Yes
It’s notable who is saying it-Congresswoman Maxine Waters:
“Maxine Waters, who has stood in vocal opposition to Donald Trump from the start, is now laying out what she believes is a plot by his own henchmen to oust him. Last night Congresswoman Waters tweeted that “Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition.” (link). While she didn’t lay out specific evidence, her theory makes logical sense. Priebus and Spicer are Republican Party loyalists and former longtime RNC employees who would rather see a fellow party loyalist like Pence in power. But what could they be up to?”
I’d actually be curious if this is based on any evidence she’s privy to or just an educated guess.
Nevertheless there are some interesting pieces of circumstancial evidence that added to Congressman Waters’ tweet makes you go ‘Hmmm.’
Putin just expelled our diplomats-took the retaliation we expected back when Obama imposed the sanctions back on December 29. 2016.
“In yet another round of games between Putin and Trump, this “retaliation” on the part of Russia is largely of the imaginary type. It began when AFP News Agency reported “755 US diplomats must leave Russia, President Putin announces” (link). That led Michael McFaul, the recent former United States Ambassador to Russia, to point out that “We dont have 755 American diplomats in Russia” (link) – and he would be in a position to know. So what’s really going on here?”
Here was another tweet by McFaul:
Could someone send me the statements of outrage from the WH or State about the Russian expulsion of our diplomats? Haven't seen yet.

Actually there is one statement of outrage-from VP Mike Pence:
“Amid a fresh wave of sanctions and renewed tension between the United States and Russia, Vice President Mike Pence reassured NATO’s Baltic member states that the U.S. stands firmly behind its mutual-defense commitment in the face of stepped-up aggression from Moscow.”
“The United States stands with the nations and people of the Baltic States — and we always will. We stand with our NATO allies in our commitment to your security,” Pence said Monday in remarks at the headquarters of Estonia’s defense forces. “Today we stand where East meets West — on a great frontier of freedom. No threat looms larger in the Baltic States than the specter of aggression from your unpredictable neighbor to the east.”
This is so notable as it’s the sort of statement that you’d expect the POTUS to make regardless of party but that Donald Trump would never make. Indeed, Anthony Scaramucci spilled the beans last week that Trump is still trying to argue ‘Who knows? Maybe it wasn’t Russia.’
There’s no question Pence sounds a lot more Presidential than Herr Trump-that’s not hard to do. Elmer Fudd sounds more Presidential than Donald Trump. Heck a crash test dummy does and a crash test dummy can’t talk.
But maybe GOPers are thinking to themselves-Mike Pence should be our President. There already have been plenty of rumors about people within the WH who have talked about the 25h Amendment. And, why not? Howard Baker talked about it with Reagan and Trump is exponentially worse than anything we saw from him.
Maxine Waters asserted that Reince and Spicer are planning a Mike Pence inauguration. In light of this, these comments by Spicer are pretty interesting:
“Outgoing White House press secretary Sean Spicer may be in search of a new professional opportunity, but he’s already offered his services to a potential presidential campaign – that of Vice President Mike Pence in 2024.”
“When and if @mike_pence runs in 2024 I would proudly play any role he asks. Good to know you have already conceded that,” Spicer wrote on Twitter late Sunday night in response to an online post from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who wrote that “Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition.”
I mean I don’t now. Spicer was trying to dismiss her claims as ridiculous but Spicer does sound kind of wistful about the idea of President Mike Pence.
